Long Days and Long Nights

Long Days and Long Nights

The Moon spins on its axis rotates once every 27 days

Earth rotates once every 24 hours

The Moons rotation means its day is almost two weeks long and then its dark for two weeks!

Slide 5

Nothing to Breathe

Nothing to Breathe

The Moon does not have an atmosphere

Atmospheres are important because they protect us from harmful solar radiation and help to keep temperatures

Slide 6

Really Hot and Really Cold

Really Hot and Really Cold

The Moons temperatures range from +107 C in the sunlight to 153 C in the shade or darkness (thats +224 F to 243 F below freezing!)

The temperature changes so much because there is no atmosphere to moderate it.

Extreme changes are bad for equipment.

Slide 7

Water?

Water?

There is no liquid water on the Moon.

There may be frozen water ice in deep craters near the poles.

Oh no.

Slide 8

Sunscreen, Anyone?

Sunscreen, Anyone?

Solar radiation levels on the Moons surface are dangerously high because there is no atmosphere to block incoming radiation.

Slide 9

High Jump!

High Jump!

The Moon is smaller than Earth, but because it has mass, it DOES HAVE GRAVITY!

The Moons gravity is ~1/6 of Earths.

Because there is less pull on you, you will weigh less and jump higher on the Moon!

Slide 10

Dusty!

Dusty!

The Moons rocks have been pulverized into a fine powder by continuous asteroid impacts.

This regolith layer can be 45 feet thick!

Slide 11

Lunar Landscape

Lunar Highlands

Bright, heavily cratered, Lunar Highlands terrae. Mostly plagioclase rocks that are about four and a half billion years old!

Dark, smooth Lunar Lowlands maria (mar-e-uh). Made of 3 to 4 billion year old basalt the same rock type as Earths ocean floor and the Hawaii volcanos.
